POMPOUS AND OLD FASHIONED
What can that mean?
Or is it your perception of the cover of the magazine?
Then maybe see behind the cover
I could be your friend or lover
Not a figure of self-importance
For instance how can you say that I am pretentious?
Showy, haughty, or ostentatious
When all you see is a figure, a figment of your imagination
There is nothing grandiose about me at all
Within these magnificent walls is an adorned, adored
Old fashioned little creature
Who loves to be loved
Cherished, wooed the old fashioned way
The giver without the receiving
So whilst I look at you looking at me
I see so much behind your exteriors
Nothing portenous, snobbish or exaggerated
You are just like me in some ways
But then again we may differ
But is that so important?
We are after all human
